Re: A Griz human encounter that went bad....

My big idea that's going to make me millions is the Bear Claymore.

It will have "FRONT TOWARD BEAR" written on it in big friendly letters.

You sure would be living a primal existence though during those last few seconds of life where your flesh is getting ripped...

Re: Too Early for this

Yeah, I was trying to be optimistic about this season, hoping it would be a wet summer without the heat but it's really not looking good.

Re: A Griz human encounter that went bad....

I live near and fish, hike, occasionally back pack and mountain bike in grizzly country. I'm always a little on edge when fishing and camping and wouldn't have it any other way.

Re: Smallmouth rod -which wt

Pretty much how I do it as well.
6wt with a popper or diver.
8wt with a popper or diver or muskie fly.
8wt with a sink tip and some kind of sub surface fly.

I love fishing for smallies.
